The right vent for your project depends on installation. For block wall or concrete installations, choose STANDARD vent. And within Standard vents, if you want air flow, then choose the Standard vent with perforated door. For stud wall or door installation, select RETROFIT vent.
USA Foundation Flood Vents were designed and constructed to meet FEDERAL, STATE and LOCAL code guidelines published by:
* FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration)
* NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program)
I* CC (International Code Council) AC-364
At greater than 250 square feet of flood coverage, each of our standard flood vents COVERS up to 25 percent MORE AREA than competitive vents
